Position yourself on the front of the boat if you would like to get wet. Feel all the elements on the hurricane deck at Cave of the Winds. Get an amazing view of Whirlpool Rapids at the Whirlpool State Park. Get to visit Goat Island, Terrapin Point, and Luna Island for a close-up of Bridal Veil Falls.
We’re driving in from out of town, where should we park?
We recommend parking at the Seneca Casino which has a free parking lot located between 4th and 6th St. You will find the entrance to the lot from Niagara St. This parking location is conveniently located within 5 minutes from our meeting point.
How wet do we get on the Maid of the Mist boat?
This generally depends on where you stand on the boat while you get close to the waterfalls. If you stand near the back of the boat, you won’t get very wet. If you stand near the front of the boat, you can expect to get fairly wet. You will be provided with a poncho while on board. Most travelers will still take their phones and cameras on board. Some travelers will choose to bring a change of shoes.
